It simply would not be a holiday without countless photos of Taylor Swift and her squad. But the star and her crew took Thanksgiving to a new level with their own rendition of the #mannequinchallenge.

On Thursday, Swift, 26, was joined by her brother Austin, Broadway star Todrick Hall, and her model pal Martha Hunt, among others. And things were just beachy for Swift and Co., as they frolicked on the sand in sweater-weather style. Swift shared several posts on Instagram to share her thanks and joy for the people by her side.

And to top off another over-the-top holiday celebration, Swift and her friends shared a video of their take on the latest viral trend, the mannequin challenge. In the video, Swift holds a portable speaker, controlling the music — “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd.

Meanwhile, her little brother looks off into the distance, and Hall and Hunt are caught mid-selfie. Just as the beat drops, each member of the group emerges from their freeze-frame poses and gets down to the new hit.

Swift spent Turkey Day with friends and family, as Hall shared a photo of the group at a large round table with the caption, “Happy Thanksgiving.” Among the additions to their squad at the dinner include Swift’s parents, Andrea and Scott.

One night before the beachside breakdancing, Swift supported Hall by attending his show Kinky Boots in New York City.

“Okay. Went to see @todrick in Kinky Boots tonight and you just need to go see it. Not trying to be bossy. But you need to,” Swift captioned one photo of Hall carrying her in his Lola costume.
